    Additional Skills

    Undertaking additional workshops alongside my degree has allowed me to develop skills in millinery, theatrical tailoring as well as a range of textile processes. I also have experience of working in archival environments, developing my knowledge of costume conservation through my degree and further work experience at the Rambert Archives.

    About me

    I am a recent graduate with a BA(Hons) degree in Costume Construction and aspire to a career working within the vibrant, exciting and fast-paced world of theatre.

    Alongside my degree studies, I have worked as a freelance costume maker for the Royal Opera House and undertaken a range of different industry related work placements. This has enriched my knowledge of working within a professional industry, providing experience of working both collaboratively and individually.

    I consider myself to be an extremely committed and dedicated individual who strives to achieve the highest outcomes in all tasks I undertake. I feel confident and comfortable in working both individually and as part of a team. Above all, I am keen to learn and improve through taking new opportunities and experiences to constantly push myself to the next level.
